What is Air Pollution?
Air pollution is actually the addition of any harmful substances to the atmosphere, which causes the damaging of the environment, human health and the quality of life. With the development in industry, came along the increase in air pollution, which occurs inside homes, schools, offices even in the countryside. Consequently there has been an increase in the death rates resulting from various diseases caused by air pollution varying from breathing problem to lung cancer. Air pollution does not only affect people but it also damages the whole ecological system in which plants and animals are harmed as well. Air pollution has reached such a critical stage where it affects the earth's atmosphere as it lets in more harmful radiation from the sun. Consequently, our polluted atmosphere is becoming a better insulator, thus, preventing heat from escaping back into space. That is why there is a global rise in temperature which scientists refer to as " global warming". As a result of this rise in temperature the world food supply and sea level will be affected, also there is the probability of increase in the tropical disease.
Sources of Air Pollution
I_ Human sources:
If we try to investigate the major sour
If people use public transportation instead of driving, this will reduce pollution by limiting the number of pollution emitting cars. Air pollution c0ontrol is a race between the reduction of pollution in the fast growth of sources. In 1992 United Nations framework convention on climate change negotiated a treaty outlining cooperative effects to stop global warming. USAID is also funding demonstrations training and promotion activities to accelerate the use of technologies and practices that will reduce air pollution. Pollution in EgyptIn the major sources of air pollution in Egypt are numerous mainly the dust small particles and soot are characteristic in Egypt. However, some pollutants attack the ozone such as the chemicals known as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) used in air conditioners, as agents in several manufacturing processes and spray cans. II_Natural sources: It is important to point out that some pollutants originate from natural sources. Also car companies are trying to manufacture automobiles that run on electricity or on cleaner burning fuels. This law put specific levels of particulate matter lead carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds, ozone and various toxic substances. 3 Instituting air quality monetary of CAIP activities4 Initiating public awareness campaigns. The efforts of the ministry of patrolling, with in a span of 2 years, 85 of Egypt's fuel supply was changed from leaded to unleaded gasoline, a step that took more than 2 decades to be achieved in the united states. The urban air pollution, which has plugged Egypt for decades, threatens Egypt's economic development and peoples health. Suspended dust is considered the major air pollution problems in Egypt. The data collected at tebbia in southern Cairo revealed that the exhalable particles are mainly generated from industrial processes. Another source of pollutant is the decomposing of garbage in landfills and solid waste disposal which emit methane gas, and many households products give off what is known as volatile organic chemicals (VOCs).
